New Foundation Honors Scott Crossfield
A new nonprofit called the Scott Crossfield Foundation has launched this week. The foundation's mission is to continue and expand upon the lifelong work of the legendary test pilot, the first to fly Mach 2, who died in 2006. The group will work to promote the Aerospace Education Teacher of the Year Award, which was created and funded by Crossfield in 1986. To help support the Foundation, limited-edition reproductions of William J. Reynolds' painting "On The Way To The Stars" are available for purchase through the Foundation Web site. These 27-year-old, mint-condition prints are each numbered and signed by the artist, with a limited number also signed by Crossfield. The Web site also features archives of historical material about Crossfield and his life and work, including photographs, slideshows, videos, stories, and comments from friends and colleagues.
All of the Reynolds prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
